Emotional Wellbeing

Children’s wellbeing is at the heart of everything that happens at Fountaindale. All of the staff recognise the importance of establishing good relationships with students and making sure that they are treated equally and fairly, and feel valued.

Wellbeing starts with individual children, celebrating and respecting their rights and needs. Students are encouraged to make choices and given every opportunity to do so. All students have a voice and they know they will be listened to by staff within lessons and tutor groups. Their opinions and ideas for wider school issues are discussed through the School Council that meets every half term.

Students are supported to access the curriculum with good humour and positive activity and bonds are formed with each other and adults as they work together to achieve. It is the caring and supportive climate of Fountaindale that ensures the students are happy, safe, supported and inspired to achieve.
